CAIR-OK releases civil rights report
by Carla Hinton
The Council on American-Islamic Relations Oklahoma Chapter recently released its first ever civil rights report following what leaders said is an increase in "Islamophobia" and anti-Muslim sentiment in the wake of the attacks in Paris, France, and San Bernadino, Calif.
The report summarizes the complaints and incidents received by CAIR-OK's civil rights department, which serves the Oklahoma Muslim community through the CAIR-OK Oklahoma City office.
Of the calls received, about half of them show evidence of discrimination or anti-Muslim bias, including denials of religious accommodations, harassment, bullying, and hate incidents, CAIR-OK leaders said in a news release Wednesday.
